The Child Removal Process
The process of child removal typically begins when someone makes a complaint to the Pennsylvania Office of Children, Youth, and Families (CYF) that a child is being abused or neglected at home. CYF will investigate the claim, and if it finds it credible, the case will go before a judge, who must decide whether to order that the child be removed from the home.
There may still be hope if a court officer, police officer or child protective services caseworker has taken your child away. As a parent, you have rights, including the right to an attorney and the right to contest the removal.
